The Black Eyed Peas have come back together to offer a celeb-filled update to their most socially conscious single, 2003’s “Where Is the Love?” The song and video launched on Apple Music on Wednesday night, and you can watch/listen here.
The list of collaborators (or supporters, since you can’t hear all of these voices) is staggering:
The Apple Music description of the track begins, “Nearly 15 years after a post-9/11 landscape inspired them to write the original, The Black Eyed Peas have reimagined their most beloved single at what feels like another critical moment.” All proceeds of the new single, listed as “#WHERESTHELOVE (feat. The World),” will be donated to Will.i.am’s i.am.angel Foundation.
Featuring Justin Timberlake, the original “Where Is the Love?” became one of the Peas’ earliest hits, and scored a Grammy nomination for record of the year. The new version has been teased on social media throughout the week.
“#WHERESTHELOVE” represents the chart-topping group’s first single together in five years; they went on hiatus after supporting their 2010 album The Beginning on the road. Check out this throwback chat with Will.i.am below:
